Postcard Swap

I joined a postcard swap. This is my first of three. I painted a half sheet of watercolour paper with gesso and textured it and then layered on earthy shades of fluid acrylic paints. That is a real ginkgo leaf that I gold leafed. The Chinese Characters are Peace and Clarity. I love fall colours but I am soooooo looking forward to spring. :)

i love the fall colors too, especially the way you have blended them all together... and the image of the woman in the corner is just gorgeous...
